Trolls Here, There, EverywhereSubmitted by DuaneK36 on Fri, 04/19/2013 - 16:50
The comment sections are the juicy part of most articles nowadays. Especially here on the Daily Paul sometimes. It is very interesting to read other's perspectives and viewpoints, it is also VERY educational.
There are more and more troll arguments in the comments now, taking much from important information that can be garnered by a reader of those comments. A good way to deal with any influx of such activity is to simply give it a thumbs down and move on. When the posts are responded to, then it takes away from the discussion...as it is meant to do.
There are claims of "Obama" creating a 3,500 man team of social networking warriors. There is also information out there that allegedly comes from persons who have worked in such positions for shady political interest groups. The tactics they describe are extremely plausible and well thought out.
From first hand experience, there is an obvious presence of these social networking individuals at the Yahoo website. You can click names there to see the viewers past comments. The same inflammatory comments are made in great numbers there, which effectively keeps a flow of comments that moves any meaningful ones out of view fast. Anyways, it probably happens all across the net, but the wisest thing to do is ignore them and not engage.
Not to mention the hysteria...I've even been called a troll here! Ok, I'll admit that sometimes I might be off base on my opinions, misinformed, say things I shouldn't sometimes, or even start spewing after too big a dose of AJ.....but come on... lol
